i select ok... well now is the WTF point because all it does is put <<new (or did it say 'next'? can't recall) record>> on the page 30 or whatever times and when i click preview labels it is blank.

if someone could pleeeease help i would appreciate it, it's really important....


Ok I think the step you're missing is, right after you insert all your merge fields, you need to hit the "update labels" under the mailing tab, you should see all the merge fields in every label, then hit "finish and merge" (second button the end), then "edit individual documents", select all, and that should be it! Good Luck!

Karma, it works every time!

Ok, when you hit "finish and merge", are you selecting "Edit individual Documents" ? When I do that I come up with 8 pages of labels.

Karma, it works every time!
